    Pros

    Global, opportunities on 4 continents.
    Cars, SUV's, Trucks.

    Cons

    Diversity is being pushed to the detriment of more qualified individuals.
    Advancement of women and minorities is reverse discrimination to qualified employees.
    Company has lost its soul and is being run like it is going out of business.

    Advice to Management

    Stop treating senior level employees poorly.
    Looking for minor code of conduct nits and releasing employees who have devoted their life affects Fords reputation.
    People are your greatest asset and you are treating those with over 20 years of experience poorly.

    Pros

    There's plenty of room to push yourself and find opportunities to grow with corporate jobs @ FMC. Within HQ, people are often moved around... one can continue to advance knowledge and skills. Some senior leaders - like Joe Hinrichs, Kumar Galhotra, and even new CEO Mark Fields - are sometimes willing to take smart risks to drive the company forward as the world continues to change. People are paid well for their work. Benefits are solid. Working for a Fortune 10 company is always good on a resume.

    Cons

    The politics, especially on the communications team, are unbelievable. Half of your time will be spent walking on eggshells as not to upset anyone and to stay on the good side of a few management team members so you can actually accomplish anything. The company claims to have a creative mindset where ideas are welcome, but that only applies to those "in" with senior leaders, who may turn on you quickly. People here learn to be experts on what leadership wants, not experts on social media or PR, which means there is a lack of creative, groundbreaking work. Teamwork is not encouraged or celebrated. Mentoring is actually discouraged. Turnover rate on this team was extraordinarily high while I was there - 1-2 people/month on average for the last few years.

    Advice to Management

    Ford's history is cyclical. Encourage teamwork and transparency at all levels and be careful not to get complacent again. The progress made can quickly and easily slip away...you have to fight for relevance to new customers and younger audiences everyday.
